Cosmetics - Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck surgery is a method of removing loose skin on the abdomen. Pregnancy and weight gain and then weight loss can stretch the skin until it looses its elasticity. It is common to also find weakened areas in the abdominal muscle under the skin that also need repair. Since there is no muscle (only elastic tissue) in skin, no amount of exercise will help that area.
There are several types of tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) depending on the amount of skin to remove and muscle to repair. Liposuction is sometimes also used to enhance the appearance of the abdomen and waist. These procedures can also be done at the time of other gynecologic surgeries such as hysterectomy and bladder repair.
Initial consultations are done by appointment.
